  • whites of five eggs
  • 1 teaspoonful of cream of tartar

Beat the butter to a cream.

Gradually add the sugar, then the lemon, and when very light, the milk, and whites of the eggs, beaten to a stiff froth.

Then the flour, in which the soda and cream of tartar are well mixed.

Bake in sheets in a moderate oven. When nearly cool, frost.
